  • Title: The Staging of the Assumption in Europe [The death and Assumption of the Virgin Mary was one of the most widely enacted sequences in late medieval religious dramas. Various staging solutions were used across Europe: horizontal staging in churches; urban staging on fixed, horizontal stages; church staging with a vertical arrangement; urban staging on a moveable stage; and urban staging on a fixed vertical stage. While performances in the North often featured demons and devils, displays in the South featured sets that depicted the heavens and made use of aerial machines. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
